the_other_sandy: Chicago skyline (Chicago)
I wasn't at Day 2 of the con, so I'll just skip ahead to Day 3.

In keeping with my inability to go to cons without running into people I know anymore, I saw (and got to talk to) [ profile] asyouleft and [ profile] daneffew today. This is the third con I've seen [ profile] daneffew at this year so far.

I also can't go to cons with celebrity guests without randomly running into at least one of those guests outside of a con event. I stopped by the hotel front desk this morning to see if anyone had turned my jacket in to the lost & found, and when I turned around to leave, Gary Jones was in line right behind me. When I came out of the bathroom later in the morning, Joe Flanigan was standing in the hallway not 5 feet away getting briefed by con staff on where he needed to be next.

Well, I gave it a fair shake, but I think I'm done with this show. I may watch it again if there's a guest star I really like (are Chris Potter and Nicholas Lea busy?), but that's about it.

Is this more fallout from the WGA strike?

FBI guy John Ashe was exhibiting that special Sheppard brand of snark there for awhile. I liked Joe as an FBI agent, even though there was one particular scene in the beginning where it sounded like the episode's director was trying to make him talk faster and Joe didn't quite sound comfortable with it. I was amused when Heather referred to him as "kind of a hottie." I wonder if that was part of the casting call? "Male. 34-44 years old. Kind of a hottie." There were certainly sparks between John and Lindsay, but I don't mean the UST kind. More like two flints striking together. I'm totally spoiler free for this series, but Speculation that could be considered spoilery if it turns out I'm right, which I hope I'm not )

Anyway, I hope the WGA strike is resolved favorably for the writers soon so that I can see this storyline to its conclusion.

Tonight was Joe Flanigan's first appearance as FBI Special Agent John Ashe (spelling taken from He plays another John! I won't need a new icon or anything. Anyway, I was all set to blog my review of his performance, but he was only in the last 20 seconds or so of the episode. Bummer. He really rocked that 20 seconds, though. 8-P

He's playing a recurring character, so I guess I'll get my fill of the Flan in later episodes. Fortunately, I happen to like this show (it's the only new fall series I tried that I stuck with), so it won't exactly be torture watching Joe here like it was watching him on CSI: Miami.

I was probably a little rough on Eureka in my previous post. Blame it on the fact that I just watched CSI: Miami. The things I do for Joe Flanigan.

In the interest of full disclosure, I would like to point out that I watched the pilot of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation when it first aired. It made me want to throw large, heavy things at my TV, oh, every 5 seconds or so. I also watched the pilot of CSI: Miami when it first aired. It made me want to throw larger, heavier things. So if you're a big CSI fan? I'll be ladling on the hate under the cut. Just so you know.

I remember watching the pilot of Tru Calling when it first came on because I liked Eliza Dushku on Buffy and because Callum Keith Rennie was a guest star. I didn't like the show then. This ep didn't make me feel like I'd been missing anything, although to be fair, it was only episode 3.
